what is the name of the amide that is formed by the following reaction:
Butanoic acid + Methylamine?

- CH3CH2CH2COOH + CH3NH2 ---> product + H2O?

i put n-methylbutyramide and they counted it wrong.

  1. N-methylbutanamide

    Note the capital N

    It is a derivative of butanoic acid so the name will be based on butanamide.
